Keeping Up with The Kardashians star Kim Kardashian has made the Forbes’ billionaires list, thanks to her SKIMS and KKW beauty products.
Kim Kardashian of Keeping Up with The Kardashians has made the Forbes’ billionaires list, thanks to her SKIMS line and KKW beauty products. The reality star has worked hard for her place on the list, but is her spot tainted by her sister Kylie Jenner lying about her status?
The Keeping Up with The Kardashians star has been laying low since filing for divorce from Kanye West back in February. The couple was close to their seventh wedding anniversary, but it looks like even power couples have kryptonite. Kardashian has been living away from her estranged husband, and it seems his mental health issues put a strain on their relationship. The couple no longer speaks to one another, and West only leaves his Wyoming ranch to see his children when she is not at home.
Even amid her divorce, Kardashian has landed herself the coveted role on the Forbes World’s Billionaires List. The outlet reports that the 40-year-old reality star is worth $1 billion, thanks to her KKW Beauty line and Skims body shapewear’s success. Forbes also noted that Kardashian receives a nice paycheck from her E! show.
The mother of four cashes in on multiple endorsement deals and other investments as well. Fans may be surprised to learn that her net worth increased after she sold 20% of KKW Beauty to Coty for $200 million. While the list’s placement is a nice morale boost, fans can’t forget that her younger sister feuded with Forbes over her own billionaire status. The magazine reported that the beauty mogul had been inflating her success for years, even after she sold 51% of her company.

West has also made it onto Forbes’ billionaire’s list and is now valued at $4.3 billion, thanks to his clothing line. It is very likely the couple will need an exit plan with help from their financial adviser, as they have the divorce paperwork coming up. Keeping Up with The Kardashians is in its last season so Kardashian will lose a check, but fans are sure she will keep on hustling to make sure she can afford her lavish lifestyle. The family as a whole has learned how to monetize their name and uses every chance they get to make a penny. It also doesn’t hurt that they have friends in high places to keep them relevant.
